7:02 am
>> there was maybe a few dry. >> what was this guy thinking? a naked man riding a unicycle. no, this is not a joke. >> all that -- p>> a new jersey family is stuc in florida because their 18-month-old was on the no-fly list. >> and applauded by anyone who's ever flown with a baby. >> i'm the only one in this town that can wear tight pants, you got it? let me tell you something, that was an icon in my life. >> and all that matters. >> a heart-warming homecoming for a u.s. marine back from afghanistan. >> on "cbs this morning." >> it's the controversial cover making national headlines. >> if you're shocked by that, you do not want to see what they have planned for father's day. welcome to "cbs this morning." erica hill is off but gayle king
7:03 am
is here. good morning. >> good to see you. it took president obama barely a day to use his support for same-sex marriage as a powerful olitical tool and a pair of ful west coast fund-raisers he said it shows a difference in visions between democrats and republicans. >> his second stop was george clooney's house in los angeles where movie stars and campaign donors with deep pockets were waiting. bill whitaker is in l.a. with last night's record-breaking fund-raiser. sounds like quite a night. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and gayle. even in hollywood, which knows a thing or two about blockbusters, this was big. a fund-raiser for president obama pulled in just shy of $15 million, the most ever raised at such an event. the set, george clooney's hollywood hills mansion. a-list actors and producers arrived in style. the star of the evening, president barack obama arrived at l.a.x. in his private jet, air force one, then choppered
7:04 am
off to join hthe $40,000 a plat fund-raiser. rob reiner was one of the in attendance. he says hollywood progressives who put mr. obama in the white house grew disillusioned with him for too often buckling under republican pressure but turned off by the hard right rhetoric of republican mitt romney and turned on by the president's endorsement of same-sex marriage, hollywood's excitement has been rekipdled. >> you're talking about people putting out $40,000 a person and raising here now up to $15 million. that's pretty enthusiastic. >> reporter: among the high rollers, steven spielberg, ronny downey jr., barbara streisand, studio chief jeffrey katzenberg.
7:05 am
dan s this. hnerr. >> four years ago barack obama was able to raise a lot of money from hollywood, from silicon valley and from wall street. this year wall street's not that excited about barack obama. so, raising money from the entertainment industry becomes even more important to the re-election campaign. >> reporter: why? most of the unlimited so-called super pac money is going on republicans. >> that's a bit of a concern. but in terms of his ability to raise money for his campaign, i don't think we have to worry. we may not be funded at the level of republicans are funded, but we'll be competitive. >> reporter: now, two-thirds of that almost $15 million came from small contributions, tens of thousands of americans gave an average of $23 apiece for the chance to win a ticket to last night's star-studded affair. two winners and their guests got to join president obama, george clooney and all those stars dining under a tent on clooney's basketball court.
7:06 am
>> thanks, bill. meanwhile, mitt romney is apologizing after reports about an incident nearly half a century ago that one witness calls, quote, an assault and battery on a boarding school classmate who turned out to be gay. >> now, "the washington post" quotes other witnesses who say that the boy was held down, screaming and crying while romney bullied him. jan crawford is in washington with the latest on this story. jan, what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, gayle, it was 1965, romney was a high school senior and first reported he and some other students had a problem with a classmate who was described as different. on the campaign trail, mitt romney, apologized for a prank he was said to have committed in school 46 years ago. >> i'm sure like other folks i've done stupid things in high school. if i oe fened anybody by that, i of course apologize. >> reporter: it was at this michigan prep school, first reported by "the washington post" where a young romney, known for his gregarious side
7:07 am
pulled a prank some say went too far. romney and other students allegedly ganged up on one team, described as a nonconformist at the straight-laced school. they attack itled him, pinned him down and romney cut his long hair. romney classmate confirmed that account to cbs. romney says he doesn't remember it. the youthful experience as a presidential candidate have been dissected for years. president obama faced questions about using cocaine and marijuana, something he admitted in one of his books. >> i spent the last two years of high school in a days. drank beer heavily and tried drugs enthusiastically. >> reporter: and then there was bill clinton who famously side-stepped the drug issue. >> i experimented with marijuana a time or two and i didn't like it. and didn't inhale. never tried it again. >> reporter: romney says he's changed since high school. got married, did mission work oveseas. in an interview with "cbs morning news," his wife remembered a younger romney who
7:08 am
liked to joke around. >> i still remember him as the boy i met in high school, when he was playing all the jokes and really just being crazy, pretty crazy. >> reporter: now, we talked to some of romney's other classmates. they said they had never heard of this incident. they said it was weird because it was a small school, they thought they would have heard of it. they said this was totally out of character for romney. he was really funny but he was never malicious. >> thank you. with us john dickerson. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. does this story damage mitt romney or simply what's going to be happening in this campaign? >> i think it is what's going to be happening in this campaign, these eruptions. it comes at a bad time for him because he's not well defined for the broader part of the electorate. but to really damage him, it has to sustain, has to continue on for a long time. his opponent, president obama, has to kind of work this issue. there's not any evidence that's going to happen. it also has to attach to a current view of him.
7:09 am
nobody's been able to find any current behavior that's like this from him. >> and you have to, i assume, admire the way the governor came right out and said, you know, i don't remember it but i apologize, so he's trying to put the story behind him. >> definitely trying to put it behind him. he's in a pickle because on the one hand he can say it didn't happen at all. the reporting of the story seems solid, every single detail may not be exactly as it happened but certainly something happened. a lot of people are on the record. on the other hand, he doesn't want to embrace all the details and have this story go on, so, yea, he certainly is trying to put it behind him. >> what, frankly, can he do more than apologize and should you be held accountable for things you did in high school? as he said, all of us have made mistakes in high school. >> thaengs tension between -- when george bush used to say i was young and irresponsible and i was young and irresponsible. people bought that. you can't go back to their youth. on the other hand, we have always looked at presidents and
7:10 am
their origin stories. stories from their qulout that have kind of told us something about their character. that's why this is potentially dicey for him. again, it's only dicey if it continues to go on and on. that means somebody has to keep talking about it. >> john, there's a fund-raising story about the obama campaign. who's going to have the financial advantage in this campaign? >> the president's probably going to have the financial advantage in terms of money that goes right to his campaign, but republicans have huge outside money going to those outside groups. so, they will probably have the advantage in certainlies of super pac money, third-party groups. in terms of the actual campaign, president obama has an extraordinary fund-raising machine. >> what do we know at this moment, one day later, about the president's position on same-sex marriage and the fallout from it? >> well, it's helping him with fund-raising. certainly helping him with enthusiastic in his party. in a short way it helps the president. he was able to talk about it last night at the fund-raisers.
7:11 am
so, and he hopes this will keep his base excited. it's also ginned up the republican base in terms of the conserve ties were nervous about mitt romney, this gives them another reason they don't like the president. >> john dickerson, thank you very much. this morning the manhunt for murderer and kidnapping suspect adam mayes is over. the two missing girls with him are safe. >> mayes killed himself last night in alpine, mississippi, after police caught up with him. mark strassmann is at the scene and brings us up to date. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. this manhunt had two goals all along -- bring home the two girls alive and get adam mayes whoever necessary. it did both. success came last night behind this church with a tip, a search and a gunshot. >> we are very relieved at this event here tonight. we have two little girls that we
7:12 am
can return to tennessee to their families. >> reporter: the hunt for adam mayes came to a dramatic end last night, two weeks after he disappeared with 12-year-old alexandria bain and 8-year-old sister kyliyah. authorities closed in on a heavily wooded area behind this small mississippi church. alexandria was spotted first, then mayes. >> sfz immediately issued commands to adam mayes to show his hands. mayes pulled a semi-automatic pistol from his waistband and shot himself in the head. >> reporter: emergency responders brought the fugitive ack to life twice before he died at a local hospital. the girls were suffering from exposure, dehydration and poison ivy and taken in for treatment as a precaution. their ordeal ended just three miles from mayes' home where the bodies of their mother and sister were found last saturday. mayes' wife ter res sa said he killed them so he could take the
7:13 am
girls. he thought he was their father. the fbi has crossed mayes off the most wanted list and his wife and mother are behind bars charged in the case but officials say the investigation is far from over. >> if we determine there was any person or persons that assisted adam mayes while he was on the run and with these girls, we plan on arresting and prosecuting them. >> reporter: when searchers first spotted mayes, they say they ordered him to repeatedly surrender. instead he pulled out a shotgun from his waistband and shot himself on the ground. all of this was just one day after mayes was added to the list of america's ten most wanted. >> mark strassmann in alpine, mississippi. the latest on the undercover agent who stopped the latest al qaeda bomb plot. officials say he could have spent another week or two collecting information on al qaeda if his cover had not been blown. >> congress wants to know who
7:14 am
did that by revealing the plot. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, hello to you. >> reporter: gayle, good morning to you. congressional leaders being briefed on this plot are furious about the leak. they say it put lives at risk, it hurt the operation and may have tipped off al qaeda to u.s. intelligence methods. the operation involved a double agent who had infiltrated al qaeda in the arabian peninsula and it was still under way when someone leaked details to the associated press. >> why would you leak something like this? what do have you to from it? >> reporter: senator lieberman and other congressional leaders met with intelligence officials yesterday. they were told the leak forced agents to wrap up the operation early, and put others involved at risk. >> this isn't the ordinary leak where you talk about who mitt romney's going to pick for vice president or how john boehner is going to support a highway bill or what nancy pelosi -- we're talking about life and death
7:15 am
here. >> reporter: house homeland security chairman peter king called the leaker a criminal. >> was one of the most sophisticated intelligence operations we had run. we had access to extremely vital information. and such a small universe of people knew about it. >> reporter: the associated press held off running the story until after u.s. officials retrieved the nonmetallic device at the center of the foiled al qaeda plot. it's an upgraded version of the underwear bomb that this would be terrorist tried to ignite on a northwest flight in 2009. defense secretary leon panetta said the leak may make it more difficult to recruit foreign individuals to provide intelligence. >> i can't tell you how much they damage our ability to be able to pursue our intelligence efforts. >> reporter: there is always the possible the leak came from a foreign partner in this operation. the british were involved,
7:16 am
saudis were involved and yesterday reports surfaced a british intelligence officer may have been the double agent. >> nancy cordes, thank you so much. with us, john miller, senior correspondent, former deputy director of national intelligence, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. good morning, gayle. >> good morning. >> where do you think this leak investigation will go? >> right now it's sitting on a desk in the department of justice. they have a complex criteria they have to go through with classified information. i think they'll determine the answer would be yes, it's criminal, especially with pressure from congress. it's when it's done sitting there, it will move across the street to the fbi. it will go to counterintelligence division. they will start down the road of who were the people who were read into the operation? who were the people they told? and that can get pretty rough. i mean, that can be people hauled into grand juries, people put on polygraphs. so, they will probably -- they will probably turn the heat up. >> how angered were they over the fact -- how angry were they
7:17 am
over the fact they may have lost over the two weeks before a lot of very good information? >> you know, charlie, this was a week of mixed emotion for the people on the operations side. you know, the great joy that comes with closing out an operation where you took a plot that was going to kill people and shut it down, but, you know, the bittersweet side of this leaked out too soon. we could have done more. we don't know what we could have accomplished with a little more time. >> but i would think, john, because the circle is so small about who knew about it, it will not be hard to find out who was the leak, is that not true? >> you know, washington can be a hall of mirrors. it's a town where information is power. and, you know, the small circle of people who knew is usually bigger than we know. >> and since the leak is out, do you think it's only a matter of time before we know who he is? >> i think we're going to get that. and i think we're not going to get it from a government leak. i mean, i think -- that's the bright line, protecting the actual identity of an informant
7:18 am
more than the existence. but i think al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, they know who he is now and they probably have his picture. they do publish a magazine. i suspect fairly soon they'll have their own story about the informant and their own take on it, which will be pretty interesting. >> so, there will be a real effort to protect him. >> yeah. i mean, he's going to be somewhere else with his family, with a new identity and a big pile of cash. i think he'll be all right. >> great to see you. >> you, too. >> time now to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. "usa today" says the government is set to release new standards for science education. a report released thursday showed eighth graders' knowledge of basic science rose slightly last year. 32% rated proficient or above. have you read about the a mayan prediction the world will end? they covered a calendar in guatemala on a wall buried in a house dating back to 8013.
7:19 am
it says nothing about the world tending. british telegraph shows a world war 2 fighter plane frozen in time in sahara desert. it crashed in 1942 and has remained untouched. there are plans to retrieve the plane and put it in a museum. the houston chronicle looks at number of foreign-born by the way deaths in america. that grew by 9 million between 2000 and 2010. 13% of the population is foreign-born, though -- that's the most, rather, in nearly a century. >>

7:21 am

you're at the fund-raiser at george clooney's house. what's been the hollywood community's reaction to the president's big announcement? has it been positive? >> has it been positive? president obama is at a giant hollywood party the night after he came out about gay marriage. this is like going to israel after you kill hitler. it's like going to bernie mann after you legalize pot. >> is gay marriage such an important social issue for the hollywood elite? >> gay marriage right now in george clooney's house, elton john is swinging from a chandelier, sipping champagne off the [ bleep ] of a naked
7:31 am
gladiator ice sculpture. and that is the straightest thing i saw in there. >> that visual, charlie, is worth the price of admission, elton john -- >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." >> it is now the defense's turn, back on track. now the defense's turn in the john edwards trial. the prosecution rested on thursday without asking for testimony from the woman at the heart of his campaign fraud case. anna werner is in greensboro, north carolina, to bring us up to date on that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, gayle and charlie. that's right. you know, the prosecution chose not to put rielle hunter on the stand ultimately, but they did call many other withins, trying to prove that john edwards knew more about the cover-up of his affair than he was willing to admit. the prosecution didn't rest its case without first taking the opportunity to use edwards' own words against him. prosecutors saved their bombshell for the end, playing edwards' 2008 interview with abc news where he was asked about
7:32 am
the cover-up of his affair. >> i've never paid a dime of money to any of the people that are involved. i've never asked anybody to pay a dime of money. never been told that any money's been paid. nothing has been done at my request. >> reporter: but jurors will no doubt recall wednesday's testimony of former press secretary jennifer palmieri. she said nearly a year earlier, edwards listened as his campaign finance chairman, fred baron, discussed keeping edwards's mistress, rielle hunter, under control, spending time and money on her. several of edwards statements in that interview were lies. first, he claimed the affair was over when it was ongoing and claimed hunter's baby wasn't his. federal prosecution says the lies hurt his case, but edwards still has a case to plead. >> if he's able to convince the jury the reason for lying when he did in august of '08 was to protect his family, then he has
7:33 am
a chance. >> reporter: shanahan says edwards might successfully argue he lied to keep wife elizabeth from finding out he fathered hunter's child. but to convince the jury he may have to speak for himself. >> i think he wants to tat stand. i mean, he believes that notwithstanding everything that's been said, i think he's got confidence he can convince the jury to see things his way. >> reporter: as edwards said during that interview, that will be their judgment to make. but before that would happen, today the defense is expected to make a motion to the judge asking her to dismiss all charges. if she does not, the defense will have its turn starting monday. back to you. >> thank you, anna. on wuthursday, after the stk markets closed, jpmorgan chase, america's largest bank, announced it lost $2 billion, with a "b," in the past six weeks. its stock fell 7% in after-hour trading. >> the ceo is blaming sloppiness
7:34 am
and bad judgment for those losses. rebecca jarvis is here. good morning. put this in context. why is this significant coming as it does with this particular bank? >> well, first of all, this particular bank managed to stay out of trouble throughout the financial crisis. jpmorgan managed to turn a profit in the financial crisis, so now $2 billion in losses, that's a significant amount of losses. the other component of why this is important and important timing is we have reached a crucial moment in financial regulatory reform. regulators are looking at wall street right now and saying, are these banks still able to take on the type of risks that would destabilize the system, allow for wall street to have all of the upside but still keep main street with the downside risk? because ultimately here, washington, d.c. is on the hook. the fdic insures these banks, like jpmorgan, bank of america, citi, if they fail, i'm not suggesting they would, but if
7:35 am
they were to fail, we as taxpayers would be holding the bag so that they could bail out their depositors. >> correct me if i'm wrong, my impression is jamie dimond is saying, we sloppily handled this, but the risk is not that great. >> that's his objective. if it turns out the risk was too great or engaging in a practice that goes outside of the boundaries of current regulations -- by the way, it might not. the regulations as they stand don't have a lot of teeth right now. in protecting banks from doing and conducting these kinds of risky things. however, he wants to make this as a one-time affair so we don't go down the road and banks face more regulation. >> so, do those of us who have chase bank accounts or accounts at other banks, should we be worried? >> no, you shouldn't because banks right now have 250 -- if you have $250,000 in a bank, you are guaranteed by an fdic-insured bank, to be bailed out in the event the bank goes
7:36 am
under. nobody is suggesting that right now, that any of these banks are in that position. but it is the fact that the taxpayer is ultimately on the hook for these losses. and, of course, you'll see it in your retirement savings because these banks -- >> saying this would have been within the volcker rule? >> voo twoo have been, which is leading people to question, well, do we need something stronger than the volcker rule. banks have pushed back saying, if we have something stronger we can't remain competitive. >> it's sunday stunning how it took that quickly to chase. >> you take that big of a bet, that's what happens. >> i see. thank you. fda experts give a thumbs up to the first new diet drug in years. we'll look at the potential risks. fbi agents say a suspected mobster may have something to to do with the world's biggest art theft. we'll look for search for evidence 22 years later. you're watching "cbs this morning." ♪ [ acoustic guitar: upbeat ]
